Our softwares

LSCorridors

LSCorridors was designed to model possible dispersal routes of the species among resource patches and multiple routes of ecological functional corridors. The package is free and open source and was developed in the Python library and Graphical User Interface with access from database of the GRASS GIS. LSCorridors support large data and can manage very complex simulations.

Tutorial de Análises Preliminares e Gráficas no R para Modelos de Nicho Ecológico

O objetivo desse tutorial é fornecer os primeiros passos para começar a utilizar o Software R para análises pré e pós o processo de modelagem de nicho ecológico (Ecologial Niche Modeling – ENM), não abordando o processo de modelagem diretamente. Esse tutorial é composto pelos seguintes tópicos: (1) estrutura e manejo de arquivos raster e vetor no R; (2) análises preliminares das variáveis ambientais: Correlação de Pearson, PCA e Análise Fatorial; (3) análises gráficas posteriores dos resultados dos ENMs. Todos os passos foram realizados no Software R, versão 3.3.1 (www.r-project.org, R Core Team 2016), para o sistema Windows. Esse tutorial é acompanhados de dados de exemplo e três scripts. Qualquer dúvida ou erro que eu possa ter cometido, não se acanhe, me mande um e-mail (mauricio.vancine@gmail.com), responderei assim que possível =]
